I met Robin in grade school in 5th and 6th grade. She was always very beautiful and a take charge and mature person for her age. She got a cool job at the Sound record store I believe when she was only in junior high. We also communicated more when she was working at a salon in high school and we would call me from work and chat. We lost touch for many years until we rekindled a relationship through Facebook and I had many rewarding conversations with her. We talked about our pets and lives and I was happy she found a good partner in Dan.
I confessed I would sing the song Windy by the Association I would imagine I was singing the song to her because she reminded of Windy. That was because she was so well dressed and cosmopolitan.
I’m very sad my friend is gone but I’m happy about our relationship so late in life.
I have a candle lit at my home here in San Fran in her honor tonight.

Husband Dan defined what love for his wife meant during her care while he also has health issues. As pet lovers, we remember how Robin was able to work on their behalf at Lawrence Humane Society. We thank God for her life, and for the lives of her family.

Robin helped me get signed up to volunteer at the Lawrence humane society. I started with giving love daily to the cats because I have a bad back.
About a week before they built the stray building a few years ago, she asked me to see if I could calm a small terrier around six months was found in the median on highway 10. The poor little girl was terrified and suffering from kennel cough. She wasn’t much bigger than my hand.
Long story short I was given the opportunity to foster the pup in her fight to get well and then adopt. My Marine husband and I trained her and she picked up on ways to become a wonderful medical assist dog for my husband.She helped us for 12 and a half years before she had to leave this earth- stroke.
Robin loved her job and she was a blessing to those around her and the animals she served.
That little dog helped my husband have a will to fight Agent Orange and other heart wrenching events.
My husband worked with Dan and we have had the family in our prayers since adoption of Ebony.
God bless Dan. I have you in my prayers.

I will miss you, you were so sweet.
